The Christian faith has always been part of my life, although it’s taken on some different forms. I knew that God loved us, but towards the end of high school, I came to realize that being a Christian also meant I could have a positive outlook on life with much joy and community.

Later on in University, I learned that there were many sound reason to believe what I had heretofore taken for granted. Whenever I ask hard questions about my faith, I’m comforted to find reasonable answers which I believe to be true and can share with others.

 

Getting married, working through a career and starting a family has made me realize the importance of integrity, simplicity and putting other first. It has been a hard-won lesson.

Skateboard ministry has shown me how important Godly fathers are and compels me to redouble my commitment to my family and to leading by example. To accomplish this, I need to be a real Christian man which I’ve learned to define as follows:

Rejects passivity

Accepts responsibility

Leads courageously

Always seeks the greater reward, God’s reward.

 

Lately, I’ve been reading extensively on the life of Winston Churchill and his indomitable leadership in WWII.

I’m inspired and deeply thankful for the powerful example this Godly man set and am resolved to carry out my life in similar honor, even if only in some small way.
